CHELSEA 4-0 Maccabi: Normal service resumed?

So finally we get a win again, albeit against Europe’s equivalent of Accrington Stanley but as the cliché goes – you can only beat what’s in front of you – and to be fair, 4-0 was a convincing win. Jose rang the changes, dropping Ivanovic, JT, Matic and Costa to the bench and whether that [...]

What Chelsea Need To Do To Win the Champions League

Chelsea fell a few places short of Champions League glory this past season, eliminated at the second round at home on away goals to 10-man Paris Saint-Germain. It wasn’t a good week for English football as no Premier League side even made the final eight of the 2014-15 Champions League. Some cynics say Chelsea didn’t [...]

Room for Improvement in the Champions League

Heading into the 2015 summer transfer window, José Mourinho has work to do if Chelsea are to stand a chance to win next season’s UEFA Champions League.

It’s a trip back to his home country tonight for Jose Mourinho as Chelsea face Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League.

CHELSEA 1-1 Schalke: In a Nutshell

I did say in the match preview, I don’t like going into games with excessive confidence – and last night’s result is the reason why. Complacent Street is never a comfortable place to be and yet, after going a goal up, that’s exactly where Chelsea appeared to take a stroll. Couple that with a few [...]
